Pre Rep ID Camp Information

  1. Players who did not play for Cobras in the 2023 season must attend

    ID camp so the coaches can show them drills that are done at rep

    level at a high intensity.

  1. A panel of coaches will assess each player on their own merits on the

    selection criteria to identify if they have the skills to attend the

    Cobra rep trials.

  1. Some feedback is given on the run during drills during the ID Camp.
  1. There is no set number of players selected in each age group.
  1. The panel of coaches meet after the end of the camp and discuss

    openly on the players who attended. The Director of Coaching has

    the final say on selections.

  1. Players selected & not selected are notified by email a few days after

    the camp if they are successful in attending Cobras trials in October.

  1. If selected to play for Cobras you must be playing or have to join

    the Kilsyth domestic competition or after school competition to be

    eligible for the Cobras representative program.
